I am always busy & doing things but I just never seem to get "there" & wouldn't I say it's just because there's not enough hours in the day. It's just that there's always so much more to do...sew, make, create, invent, read, visit, gather, write or cook & that's not even to mention garden!! That's where blogging is very useful since it's difficult to write a blog without taking photos, well, unless you've got an awful lot to say for yourself & nothing much to show! And photos are very good for reminding you of all that you may have done or accomplished, after all.
It was still very hot & profoundly summery only a few weeks ago when I bought this wardrobe from the Saly's..
Quite a contrast from the yellow & blue that we began with..
We even managed to put down some secondhand carpet that we bought several years ago & that has been sitting in our neighbours garage all this time..oh the dear long suffering Margaret..we owe her a million dollars in rent by now! I had scavenged a good lot of almost new underlay that was being discarded in the interim, so the carpet laying cost us $9 for the tacking board & $17 for the hire of the knee-kicker (never heard of such a thing until the other day!)
Our bright summery skies have quickly become wet & sodden this past week, not that we didn't need the rain after a very droughty summer, mind you..but what to do on a rainy Sunday afternoon?
Ah ha just the ticket.
Would be useful if we could remember how to play more than Last Card & Fish, of course. Ok, so we stuck to Last Card this time around & no Rob, we can't play solitaire!
I found three pretty little tea cups at St Vinny's this week & then a lovely inspirational picture over here.
So, while sorting the sewing room I fluffed with lace & the cake stand...
Don't know what happens with me & indoor plants..at least they do grow outside for me.
The next "Good" has just arrived in the letter box.
Not quite as sparkling as the last issue (hopefully yours will reach you soon girls).
Since most of you don't have access to the magazine I thought that I would share this wonderful back page with you. I think I might have to copy it & put it on the cupboards in the kitchen (so I can see it a lot) & I'll take it over to Audrey, my lovely learned friend across the road. Her whole world has always been books, history, cats & learning. Oh she is such a dear 84 year old soul!
Thank you so much for visiting me.
Have a lovely week dear ones & do let me know if you ever figure out how to catch up, won't you!
